"Tara is an antagonist, but she isn't pure evil. She's a marauder with her own goals and intentions. To represent this, I emphasized exotic world instruments, with woodwinds such as the fujara and pan flutes, stringed instruments such as the tanbur and viola da gamba, as well as Renaissance German Hümmelchen bagpipes and Middle Eastern percussion such as frame drums and dumbek. However, the most iconic sound in Tara's theme is definitely the human voice, with her melody frequently being sung by a powerful alto vocalist. These distinct colors gave her an operatic, memorable theme that I hope resonates with players as they encounter this unforgettable character."
―Bear McCreary[src]

"Tara's Theme" is a musical theme composed by Bear McCreary for the action-adventure VR experience Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge. The theme represents Tara Rashin and her Guavian Death Gang cell, and was released on ILMxLAB's YouTube channel on November 11, 2020.[1]
